This is the real reason President Trump doesn't show up on Epstein's flight logs.

Trump famously owned a Boeing 727, suspiciously it was registered with a Bermunda registrations VP-BDJ Trump 727 VP-BDJ
Trump then purchased a Boeing 757, this one on US registration N757AF. Which we know has had online tracking blocked before. Trump 757 N575AF

Both aircraft have been spotted in the Caribbean many times by amateur plane spotters. And yes, you may ask, did Trump have properties in the Caribbean? He did, which makes the Trump - Epstein connection even more suspicious. Take a look inside Trump’s Caribbean estate and Donald Trump Joins Raffles Hotels in the Development of Canouan Island

So why would Trump have to travel on Epstein's plane, to Epstein's island? When all along Trump was flying to the Caribbean on a regular basis, landing in Puerto Rico and St Martin just 50 miles from Epstein's island.


That makes 3 locations that Trump and Epstein had properties with in a short trip of each other:
  1. Manhattan
  2. Palm Beach
  3. Caribbean Islands
Jeffrey Epstein’s Notorious Mansions In New York And Palm Beach List For Combined $110 Million

Keep in mind, Epstein and Maxwell are believed to have been recruiting at Trump's Mar-A-Lago property in Palm Beach.
How one Epstein victim was said to be recruited from Mar-a-Lago, and all the other connections between the accused sex trafficker and Trump's Palm Beach resort


So we have 3 properties near each other.
We have statements Epstein and Maxwell used Trump's Mar-A-Lago for sex trafficking.
How many more connections do we need?

Oh, there's more!? There were also the times we know Trump and Epstein did fly together!
And we know Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell flew with Trump on Trump's plane.
“Never be late for someone else’s plane,” Trump says, his facial expression showing a mixture of annoyance and bemusement. The offending party is stuck in Friday rush-house traffic. “C’mon, Jeffrey, where are you?” Trump says. He’s talking about Jeffrey Epstein, another wealthy and well-known man who is traveling with Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of the late media baron Robert Maxwell. The couple finally arrives, Epstein wearing an orange sweatshirt and jeans and Maxwell sporting sunglasses and fashionably tight pants. Trump brightens and gently chides them, forgiving their tardiness.
According to Corcoran, Epstein and Maxwell arrived with another passenger not mentioned in the piece. “They did board with a young woman of indeterminate age. I wouldn’t be able to tell if she was 15 or 20. She was quite dressed up and quite made up, so it was hard to tell,” Corcoran said over the weekend. “At the time I didn’t even know who Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were, so when they got on I thought, Maybe they’re married and that’s their niece.”
Remembering the Time Jeffrey Epstein Rode on Donald Trump’s Plane

Epstein, who was accused with sex-trafficking underage girls, flew from New York to Palm Beach, Florida in 2000 on Trump's plane, according to an unearthed article from a now defunct golf magazine.
Along for the ride was his then-girlfriend and close associate Ghislaine Maxwell, who has herself been accused of grooming underage girls for sex with Epstein.
Now in a bombshell claim, the journalist who wrote the original article has revealed there was also an 'underage-looking' girl with Epstein and Maxwell aboard the jet.
Veteran reporter Michael Corcoran said he traveled with Trump in March 2000 to write an in-depth profile about the then-business mogul, who was also an avid golfer, for Maximum Golf magazine.
The now 54-year-old says he vividly remembers Epstein, Maxwell and a young girl turning up to board the Boeing 727 at New York's LaGuardia airport because Trump was mad that they were running late and screamed at them when they arrived.
EXCLUSIVE: 'She was made up to look older, she was uncomfortable.' Jeffrey Epstein took 'young girl' on Donald Trump's plane, possibly sex-trafficking teen across state lines right under the now president's nose, claims journalist

Then there is the time we know Trump flew on Epstein's Gulfstream II, not the Lolita Express but another jet in Epstein's fleet.
Newly unsealed flight logs show that President Donald Trump flew on Jeffrey Epstein's private jet in 1997, along with the billionaire couple Glenn and Eva Dubin.
A handwritten entry in the flight logs shows a trip that Trump and the Dubins took from the Palm Beach International Airport to the Newark Liberty International Airport
The other named passengers, besides Trump and the Dubins, are Jeffrey Epstein ("JE"), Ghislaine Maxwell ("GM"), Mark Epstein, and someone identified as "Didler" or "Didier." The date of flight is listed as January 5, 1997. The log lists the model of the plane as a Gulfstream II, under the tail number N908JE
Unsealed flight logs show that Trump was on Epstein's private jet in 1997


Then we have Mark Espstein saying Trump flew on Jeffrey Esptein's planes numerous times.
For the better part of two decades starting in the late 1980s, Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump swam in the same social pool. They were neighbors in Florida. They jetted from LaGuardia to Palm Beach together. They partied at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and dined at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion.
Trump flew at least once, in the late 1990s or 2000, on Epstein’s private plane from Florida to New York, according to Epstein’s brother, Mark, who described the flight in a 2009 deposition.
In an interview last week with The Post, Mark Epstein said Trump flew on the plane “numerous times” but said he was only present for one flight.
“They were good friends,” Mark Epstein said. “I know [Trump] is trying to distance himself, but they were.” He added that Trump used to comp Epstein’s mother and aunt at one of Trump’s Atlantic City casino hotels. When a Post reporter sought further details, Mark Epstein hung up.
Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein partied together. Then an oceanfront Palm Beach mansion came between them.

So why would Trump have to travel on Epstein's plane, to Epstein's island.
When all along Trump was flying to the Caribbean on a regular basis, landing in Puerto Rico and St Martin just 50 miles from Epstein's island.
When all along Trump and Epstein had properties near each other in Manhattan and Palm Beach.
When all along they actually WERE flying together.
How many more connections do we need?

Mission Concept - Safe Harbor (Cruise Ship)

Briefing: Welcome to Puerto Rico, 47. A number of key members of Providence have scattered to the wind. We have obtained information that three of them recently embarked on a tropical cruise aboard one of the most expensive and luxurious Cruise Ships ever built, the Cierto Destino, which is currently moored in the San Juan Harbor.
((I'm terrible at coming up with character names so I'll leave place holders instead))
Your Targets are (Target 1), a Texan Oil Man with major influence over a handful of prominent US Politicians and his wife, (Target 2). (Target 2) plays an important role in facilitating blackmail on Politicians and lawmakers alike, providing (Target 1) with all of the necessary strings to pull to stack the deck in his - and by extension - Providence's favor.
Your third Target is (Target 3), happens to be the owner of the very Cruise Line the Cierto Destino operates under. (Target 3) has used his fleet as a front for a wide range of nefarious international activities, including drug, weapon and human trafficking. Every bit of (Target 3's) operation is directly tied to Providence, and upon learning of the deaths of the Washington Twins and the disappearance of The Constant, (Target 3) made a pact with (Target 1 and Target 2) to venture off on a one-month long Tropical Cruise, hoping to hide among the civilian pleasure seekers and eventually disappear across the world, assuming new identities. (Target 3) has associates in Puerto Rico, and will undoubtedly be meeting with them to arrange for assistance in their efforts to vanish.
We have provided you with a Boarding Pass to access the Ship while it is in Port, although I'm sure you could find another way aboard, if you choose.
Get on the Ship, find (Target 1), (Target 2), and (Target 3) and eliminate them before they manage to elude us.
Good Hunting, 47. I will leave you to prepare.

Map Design:
A large, modern, luxurious Cruise Ship docked at a busy Port in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Some Guests aboard the ship have ventured into the nearby resort town, while many others remain on the ship, enjoying the in-house entertainment such as the on-deck swimming pool/hot tubs, shuffle board courts among other sporting activities, and the main feature of this particular vessel - an extravagant, mid-ship, high roller Casino with a variety live entertainers and a high class restaurant. Of course there are the passenger dorms, several floors and many, many rows of them. Most are locked, some can be accessed by keycards. The bowels of the ship contain the facilities - laundry, electrical, plumbing, food storage/kitchen, engine room, staff quarters, infirmary, dentist's office, cargo, etc. Upper deck is mostly fine dining and VIP areas as well as, of course, the main crew's quarters and the Bridge. 47 may exit the ship onto the dock, but the end of the dock leading into town is an "Exit Mission" area. Other Mission Exits include a Coast Guard vessel moored at the same dock, a Helicopter on the ship's own Helipad, a new Life Boat being swapped in for a damaged one by the maintenance crew, and an Easter Egg exit where 47 can lay back on a deck chair and enjoy the sun as the ship leaves Port (only accessible with a Silent Assassin/Suit Only rating and some other specific criteria) .
Map Specific Weapons/Items:
OaPaddle- Non-lethal melee. Suspicious item unless carried by Ship Crew.
Flare Gun- A multi-use tool. Can be used as a distraction, to ignite fuel sources, or will knock NPC's unconscious if you shoot them in the head. Body shots will knock the down and they will go hostile (they do not catch fire).
Shuffleboard Puck- Small, weighted object good for knocking people out or causing a distracting noise when thrown.
Braided Rope- Meant for tying down cargo or for other uses such as mooring small boats. Good for strangling. Harpoon Spear- A decorative item in the Captain's Quarters to remind him of a past life. Can be utilized as a lethal thrown or melee weapon.
Flintlock Pistol- Also found among the Captain's personal treasures, a real, working Flintlock Pistol. The items needed to make it fire are also nearby.

Disguises:
Bridge Crew- Access to most areas, enforced by other Bridge Crew
Room Staff- Access to passenger dorms, laundry, kitchen, most other areas except for VIP, Bridge, mechanical.
Technician- The Mechanics/equipment operators that keep the ship running/repaired. Access to all mechanical areas and just about anywhere else on the ship as long as there's a valid excuse to be there.
Security- Allowed almost anywhere, enforced by most other Security, Bridge Crew, and some other ship crew.
Pirate- An old costume once used as part of a stage show, found in storage in the Laundry Room. Most guests will remark but won't question, staff may be confused, higher-ups will be suspicious.
Safety Man- One guest particularly paranoid and obsessed with safety, always wearing his life vest with a whistle strung around his neck, dark sun glasses, visible sun screen smeared on his face and nose, a wide brimmed hat and super-grippy water proof shoes. Allowed anywhere a guest is allowed to be.
VIP- The VIP Lounge Dress Code requires special lounge robes of a dark burgundy color, with comfortable black lounge pants and lounge shoes.
Captain- The Ship's Captain's Uniform. Not likely to fool anybody except guests.
Inspector- The Ship is due for inspection and (Target 3) will lead the way. Not allowed anywhere but within the vicinity of (Target 3).
Dentist- The Ship's onboard Dentist. Recognized by all staff, (Target 3), no guests.

Kill Opportunities/Challenges:
Some of these can be used in Mission Stories, but here are just a sample of basic ideas for fun/unique kills.
-I'm Flying!: Push a Target over the railing at the very front of the ship (Target 2 will go out here hoping for a movie-like romantic experience with Target 1. Subdue him while she's distracted and shove her over the railing.)
-Murder of Crows Nest: Use a Sniper Rifle to kill a Target while perched in the Crows Nest.
-Organic Fuel: Push a Target into the Fuel Tank below deck and seal the lid (Target 3 will lead the Inspector through the engine room).
-High Die: Rig the High Dive Board to collapse under the weight of a Target, causing them to fall onto the pool's edge (Target 3 will demonstrate the strength and safety of the diving boards to the Inspector who challenges the idea of having such a thing on the ship).
-Unsecured Load: Cause a Vehicle stored in the Cargo Area to come loose and crush a Target. (Target 1 will wait here to meet Target 3. You might be able to get them both.)
-Fish Food: Kill a Target by dumping them into the Aquarium that overlooks the main lounge area. (Target 2 will view the Aquarium from above. Shove her in.)
-Down with the Ship: Rig a VIP Life Boat (VIP life boats are assigned to specific guests) to sink, and cause a Target to attempt to escape on it, drowning them. (Target 3 will panic and flee if confronted or if the alarm is sounded. If you've removed the drain plug from the boat or shot a hole in it, it will sink as soon as it hits the water, and he will be trapped inside.)
-Tooth-Hurty: Cause a Target to damage a tooth during lunch, then kill them in the Dentist's Chair (Take a Pearl Necklace from one of the Guest Rooms and mix some of the Pearls into Target 1's food. Go to the Dentist's Office and Poison the nitrous gas, inject with lethal poison, smother with a towel, etc - you can pose as the Dentist or not.)
-Lifeless Boat: Kill a Target by dropped a Life Boat from stowage while the Target is on the Dock.

J’Leon Love 16(9)-0 vs Vladine Biosse 15(7)-2-2

10 rounds
super middleweight division
Love at one point in time appeared to be one of Mayweather Promotion’s fast rising prospects who would undoubtedly hold a world title someday, sooner rather than later. A meeting with Gabriel Rosado resulted in a controversial win. Leon was dropped in round 6 and later had the win turned to a no contest after he failed a post-fight test. Love has since fallen out of contention for title shot status and it appears he has a long way to go before rejoining the fold. This is another small step for him in facing Biosse. Biosse is a regional fighter who will probably sell a lot of tickets, but ultimately has come up short in his attempts against good opposition. He’s coming off a draw and a TKO last year against Marcus Upshaw. If Love doesn’t make easy work of this, serious doubts will arise about whether Love can ever compete at an elite level.

Mickey Bey 19(10)-1-1 vs Alan Herrera 32(21)-5

10 rounds
lightweight division
Bey is a very good prospect. His one loss came against John Molina who pulled off a nice 10th round upset after being thoroughly beaten for the other 9 rounds. Bey is slick, he boxes beautifully, and mixes punches up very nicely. Even after the loss, I still think he’s got a bright future if he can tuck that chin and stay responsible on defense. Herrera is quite experienced for a 24 year old. He hasn’t fought since last August where he was dropped and beaten over 6 rounds. Bey should have this in the bag.

Badou Jack 16(11)-0-1 vs Derek Edwards 26(13)-3-1

10 rounds
super middleweight division
Ok Badou Jack, it’s all up to you now. J’Leon doesn’t appear to have it. Bey already took a loss. We don’t really know what we got with Pearson. It’s up to you to carry Mayweather Promotions. Are you up for it? Maybe. I like Jack and his style, but there are still a lot of questions about his game. Edwards won’t be much of a test. He’s coming off a knockout loss to Matt Korobov. Jack will eventually be properly tested. Friday won’t be that day.

Robert Stieglitz 46(26)-3 vs Arthur Abraham 38(28)-4

12 rounds
WBO super middleweight title
Robert Stieglitz has held the WBO super middleweight title since August of 2009 when he knocked out Karoly Bazsay. There was a brief interlude in 2012 Stieglitz was separated form his title. An upset loss to Arthur Abraham who had previously been beaten by the real super middleweight champion of the world, Andre Ward, Carl Froch, and Andre Dirrell. In the rematch, Abraham developed a massive swelling out of his eye and the fight was stopped in the 4th because he could no longer see out of the eye. Since then, Abraham has won both fights he’s been in and while his last fight was a very wide decision, Abraham appears to have slipped quite a bit. The question will be whether Stieglitz has too. If he hasn’t Stieglitz will win an easy decision.

James DeGale 17(11)-1 vs Gevorg Khatchikian 20(8)-0

12 rounds
super middleweight division
DeGale was once one of the UK’s rising prospects in the super middleweight division. He then entered into a sink or swim fight with another undefeated super middleweight prospect. That prospect was a 23 year old named George Groves. Groves was the more experienced that night, and today he reigns as one of the most beloved fighters in the world (coming off a loss.) While Groves will be facing Carl Froch in the coming months, DeGale is still rebuilding. Khatchikian has a nice record, but he’s never fought away from his home in the Netherlands. Maybe DeGale can have another gut check fight with Callum Smith. (Note: Degale was originally supposed to be in an eliminator fight with Badou Jack.)

Lee Haskins 28(12)-3 vs Elton Dharry 15(9)-5-1

Ricky Burns 36(11)-2-1 vs Terence Crawford 22(16)-0

12 rounds
WBO lightweight title
I get asked this question a lot. Who are the best prospects in boxing? Or, who are the young up-and-comers out there that I should check out? You know where I’m going with this if you know about Terence Crawford. My next question is, are you a fan of slick boxers, the kinds of guys who can make their opponent miss and then make them pay? Because to this point in his career, Terence Crawford is that guy; I don’t believe he’s lost a round in his entire career. On Saturday he’ll fight for the lightweight title against one of the toughest guys in the sport… and Crawford is the favorite. Burns hasn’t looked good in his last 2 fights. He had a controversial win over Jose Gonzalez after Gonzalez quit with a wrist injury and Ray Beltran broke his jaw and dropped him. And yet, Burns has prevailed.
This is the biggest test of Crawford’s young career. If he breezes past Burns, all of our suspicions will be confirmed. If he loses, we’ll have to chalk it up to him being yet another product of clever match-making and HBO spotlight.
Burns has 2 losses on his ledger, both came when he was young and still fighting on the domestic UK scene. Since then he’s moved up to lightweight and hasn’t been beaten in 6 years. Burns has been dropped before, but has shown to have tremendous heart. With only 11 stoppage wins for Burns and Crawford not exactly being a devastating puncher, this has 12 rounds written all over it. I like Crawford in this. He’s got a significant reach advantage and very recently Burns has shown a weakness toward fighters who can box well. Crawford has proven to have next level boxing ability and will pose a lot of problems for Burns.

Joshua seemed to be on the fast track in the heavyweight division, but either Eddie Hearn has lost interest or hasn’t been too impressed. Avila is tested and experienced, but Joshua shouldn’t have too much trouble.

Anthony Ogogo 4(2)-0 vs Greg O’Neill 3-1

6 rounds
middleweight division
Ogogo looked absolutely spectacular early on. He was the first of the British Olympians to get a pro debut and I was sure he was going to be a big hit in the middleweight division. He’s failed to stop 2 opponents and it’s since slowed his ascension down. I still think Ogogo will be special and a top contender at middleweight, but it won’t be anytime soon.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr 47(32)-1-1 vs Brian Vera 23(14)-7

12 rounds
super middleweight division
Making weight will be a victory for Chavez Jr. Beating Vera will only be icing on the cake. Chavez Jr has said that there’s a new maturity and responsibility in his life after the birth of his first daughter. If he holds true to his word, he’ll make weight and beat Brian Vera without any controversy this time around.
Vera has been training in a state of the art facility with a gameplan that no doubt includes having the stamina to overwhelm the plodding legend’s son with a ton of punches and movement. Vera began boxing late in life and his defensive lapses show it. He gets caught with flush shots when he’s out of position and those shots were the difference between winning and losing the first fight with Chavez Jr. Actually, I take that back. Not because it’s not true, in my eyes and any respectable boxing fan’s eyes that’s certainly true. But in the eyes of Gwen Adair and Marty Denkin (who both saw a resounding victory for Chavez) avoiding those shots wouldn’t have made much of a case for Vera to win the first fight.
I will say this about their first fight. It is true that Chavez Jr landed the harder, more significant punches. I thought there was a point when he could have stopped Vera if he turned up the fire. And yet, the most generous score I could have given in favor Chavez Jr was a draw. On the other side, a generous score for Vera would be something 96-94 at most.
Going into this fight, Chavez Jr remains the favorite. Bovada is asking for $500 bucks to yield a $100 dollar return. If Vera can use lateral movement and escape exchanges without going back in a straight line, victory will be his. Unfortunately for Chavez Jr, should he win this fight, Andre Ward will be his prize.

Orlando Salido 40(28)-12-2 vs Vasyl Lomachenko 1(1)-0

12 rounds
WBO featherweight title
Top Rank is looking to make history. They’ve got perhaps the greatest amateur boxer ever and they’re looking to make him a champion in only his second professional fight. It’s never been done. They looked at the landscape of champions at featherweight and chose Orlando Salido, fresh off a dominating win over Orlando Cruz, as the opponent for a guy who’s 1 fight removed from head gear and the lol amateur scoring system. They deemed Salido the better match instead of Simpiwe Vetyeka (Donaire gets him), Jhonny Gonzalez, and Evgeny Gradovich. (Gonzalez wouldn’t happen because of promotional issues.) If ever a guy with only one fight on his resume could win a title in his second fight, it’s Lomachenko. It won’t be easy though. Salido has some pop, he’s got massive determination, and he’s got a… “veteran” ruggedness to him. Will Lomachenko be able to deal with it? Betting sites have Lomachenko as a heavy favorite. I know Salido’s record indicates that this is all but a done deal for Lomachenko, but in the past couple of years, nobody has fought Salido and gotten an easy win. Even Mikey Garcia who knocked him down what seemed like 10 times began to struggle late and had his nose broken. My only question is can Lomachenko hang for 12 rounds? Salido will no doubt look to test that by pressuring him early and seeing how he holds up when the championship rounds roll along.

Juan Diaz 38(19)-4 vs Gerardo Robles 16(7)-12

10 rounds
lightweight division
The baby bull returns! Again. He fought three times last year after taking a three year hiatus from the sport. Diaz has always been a forward-marching brawler who brings action. Robles is coming off 2 straight losses (including one to rising prospect Jose Felix Jr) and has never done well against stiff competition. Even if Diaz was half the fighter he was before the hiatus, he'd take care of Robles easy. Look for an early stoppage here.

Oscar Valdez 8(8)-0 vs Samuel Sanchez 6(1)-4-1

6 rounds
featherweight division
My favorite prospect in all of boxing. He's polished, patient, puts together punches well, basically everything you'd want to see if you were building a fighter to someday win a title. I think Valdez, along with Luke Campbell and Zou Shiming, needs to step up their competition. I don't believe he's really learning much mowing through these kids that are clearly not as skilled as him. A step up would force Valdez to grow rather than refine what we already know he's good at. I promise you that as much as I praise Valdez, Bob Sheridan will make me look like indifferent on the TopRank.TV stream this Saturday.

Alex Saucedo 12(9)-0 vs Gilbert Venegas 12(8)-12-4

6 rounds
welterweight division
Saucedo is almost reckless. He's still quite green, but I like what I see out of him. This is definitely one of the better prospects out there and I think when they elevate his competition, you'll see him grow into one of the better, aggressive fighters out there.

interim WBA world flyweight title
Saengthep goes by another alias, Yongmongkol CP Freshmart. I didn’t even realize this was him until I looked closer. Anyway, CP Freshmart is on his way in the flyweight division. A win here will most likely earn him a shot against Juan Carlos Reveco somewhere down the line. It won’t be easy though. Kogawa once took Pongsaklek Wonjongkam 12 rounds. He came up short, but has since been a solid competitor on the Japanese domestic scene. I believe Freshmart’s power will be the difference here (as well as the fact that they’re fighting in his hometown.)

This fight may have arleady taken place… but pretend it hasn’t. I mean, you probably haven’t seen the results so it’s pretty much the same thing. Anyway, Sam Soliman has the distinction of being one of the few to go into Germany and actually beat Felix Sturm by controversial decision. That decision was ultimately reversed and declared a no contest because 70 year old Soliman tested positive for an illegal stimulant. Soliman has since left Germany and returned to fight in the motherland. I’m curious to see if Soliman wins and calls out Golovkin after the match.

Malek may have a record that may or may not be eerily accurate to what I expect the Brooklyn Nets record may be toward the end of the season, but come on! At least Malek doesn’t kick over the spit bucket to give his corner extra time to cover up their incompetence.

David Fidler 7(3)-0-2 vs Chris Jenkinson 6(3)-10-1

Joe Rodges 5(1)-0 vs Pavels Senkovs 4(3)-65-5

Senkovs called up Malek and said, “I want my gimmick back!” What does Rodgers’ manager tell him if he loses? Do you think Pavels’ trainer reminds him that his KO percentage is almost as good as GGG’s?

Josesito Lopez 30(18)-6 vs Mike Aranoutis 24(11)-9-2

10 rounds
Welterweight division
Josesito Lopez is always must watch TV. This is a guy who can box pretty well, but just can’t shake the temptation to brawl and when he does, it’s usually high drama, as Lampley would say. If Lopez looks exceptional, he lines himself up to face a slew of opponents whose names include Lucas Matthysse and possibly a rematch with Victor Ortiz. Aranoutis is of Greek descent who currently fights out of Queens, NY and has fought and lost to Danny Garcia (KO), Demetrius Hopkins (UD), Delvin Rodriguez (UD), Victor Ortiz (TKO), Kendall Holt (UD), and Ricardo Torres (SD). He hasn’t won a fight in over a year and it will be a good fight for Lopez to get himself back in the win column.

Francisco Vargas 17(13)-0-1 vs Jerry Belmontes 18(5)-2

10 rounds
Super bantamweight division
28 year old Vargas has recently begun to pick up the level of competition by coming to America to fight. Belmontes is another step-up... although he’s lost 2 of his last 3. I don't know if this is good or bad, but Vargas could be fed to Leo Santa Cruz if he wins impressively.

Hugo Centeno Jr 19(10)-0 vs Angel Osuna 11(7)-4-1

10 rounds
Middleweight division
Centeno is a friend of /boxing. Check out the sidebar for the AMA he did a while back. Centeno Jr is coming off a NC with Julian Williams as part of a Golden Boy Live card put on during the Mayweather-Canelo fight week. The fight was stopped due to an accidental butt, which may have been a blessing in disguise. Centeno had previously beaten Julian Williams and was on his way to losing the rematch as he had lost the first 3 rounds on the judges scorecards. Centeno is an exciting fighter to watch, he fights in a crowd-pleasing style, and I’m hoping for the best for his career.

Errol Spence 9(7)-0 vs Noe Bolanos 25(16)-9-1

8 rounds
Welterweight division
Watch out for Spence. The dude packs serious power and carries an impressive amateur pedigree. Bolanos is another step up in competition for Spence who may someday be fighting for world titles. This card is stacked!

Gary Russell Jr 23(13)-0 vs TBA

10 rounds
Super featherweight division
OH YEAH! Get yourselves ready! The return of the fastest hands in the west, none other than TBA! TBA is back in action to face one of the premier super featherweight prospects in the world. Russell Jr is an exciting young fighter and the real test will be whether or not TBA actually shows up to fight. There are times when he can’t be bothered to get mentally and physically in the fight, but when he does rise to the occasion, it’s usually fireworks.

Jermall Charlo 16(12)-0 vs Joseph De los Santos 17(9)-11-3

8 rounds
Light middleweight division
The Charlo twins are 2 of boxing’s brightest prospects. They are big light middleweights that are a couple of fights away from fighting for world titles. Jermall is the more aggressive, heavier handed of the 2. Both are solid defensively and this should be an easy fight for Charlo.

Vacant WBA word light heavyweight title

Kubrat Pulev 18(9)-0 vs Joey Abell 29(28)-6

12 rounds
IBF international heavyweight title
Pulev, by many, is considered to be the one to challenger and defeat Wladimir Klitschko. Pulev is a sneak fighter who does a lot of things well. He’s good defensively, mixes up offense very well, and is coming off the best victory of his young career after defeated Tony Thompson. This is an interesting match to see how Pulev handles Abell’s power. It’s been 6 years since Abell has won a fight by decision. Everyone else has crumpled under his power. If Pulev is for real, Abell should not last more than a few rounds. Arreola was able to KO him in 1 round in early 2011.

Serhiy Fedchenko 33(14)-2 vs Ignacio Mendoz 38(23)-8-2

12 rounds
WBO European light welterweight title
Fedchenko is famously known as the guy who Marquez fought before his fourth fight with Pacquiao. Fedchenko was able to take Marquez 12 rounds and ultimately lost a wide decision. Fedchenko has no real impressive wins on his record, but he’s fighting a beatable opponent so he’s got that going for him.

Usyk is another prospect in the same vein as Anthony Joshua. He had a decorated amateur career and won Olympic Gold in Beijing in the heavyweight division. Usyk is definitely someone you should add to your prospect list if you want to be able to say “I told you so” one of these days.

Martin Murray 25(11)-1-1 vs Sergey Khomitsky 28(11)-9-2

10 rounds
Middleweight division
Murray has recently come out and said he's willing to face Golovkin. Well, should he win this fight, it would put him at the front of the line in the Golovkin sweepstakes. The line isn’t long anyway. Murray is coming off a controversial loss against the reigning middleweight king, Sergio Martinez in Argentina. Many believe the decision to be a hometown gift, but to me, Murray didn’t do enough to differentiate himself from the champion. Still, Murray showed a lot of good things. He’s a great defensive fighter who knows when to counter out of his guard, and carries a decent bit of pop. I can’t see Khomitsky giving him too much trouble.

Khalid Yafai 9(6)-0 vs Ashley Lane 4(1)-3-2

Amir Mansour 19(14)-0 vs Kelvin Price 14(6)-1

Mansour is not exactly a prospect. He’s 41 years old and prison time has stunted a large part of his would-be career. Still, this is going to be on NBC Sports Network and should be a good fight.

Adrien Broner 27(22)-0 vs Marcos Maidana 34(31)-3

12 rounds
WBA world welterweight title
This is the /boxing fight of the week. Look here for an in-depth preview. If you want my opinion, it’s this: Broner has made himself to be the ultimate heel in boxing today, and he hasn’t done that by simply running his mouth. He’s been arrogant, and backed it up in the ring. Saturday, it will be seen if one of hardest punchers in the game can humble Broner, or will Broner have been right all along.

Keith Thurman 21(19)-0 vs Jesus Soto Karass 28(18)-8-3

12 rounds
Interim WBA world welterweight title
The WBA is a weird organization. This is for the interim ‘B’ level belt of their main belt which is called the Super World welterweight title. This is just the WBA world title. Anyway, what this means is that should Broner win the title and then vacate to go back down to 135, the winner will fill in as the title… Or the winners will fight to determine the real champion… before they face the real-er champion. Anyway, Keith “One Time in San Diego” Thurman is yet another guy on the cusp of breaking into boxing’s upper echelon. Standing on the other side is Jesus Soto Karass. Don’t let Karass’s 8 losses fool you. He’s claimed to have not taken boxing seriously when he was amassing loss after loss. Since losing to Marcos Maidana in a brutal 8 round war full of fouls, he’s won 2 straight. He’s a tricky fighter who does a lot of things well. He’s faced nearly every time of style there is and has never been completely blown out in any fight. If Thurman is not the real deal, or his power has been exaggerated to this point, Karass will bring it to light. If Thurman is the real deal, like many are projecting, Karass may have a tough time. Thurman has exceptional timing, patience, and power. This has all the makings of a trap fight for young Thurman.

Leo Santa Cruz 26(15)-0-1 vs Cesar Seda 25(17)-1

12 rounds
WBC super bantamweight title
Leo Santa Cruz is an all-action, torrential downpour of leather. Cesar Seda is a 27 year old Puerto Rican southpaw who hasn’t fought in a 12 round fight since 2011. That fight was for the WBO super flyweight title against long reigning Argentine champ Omar Narvaez. If Santa Cruz loses, this would be a massive upset.

Beibut Shumenov 13(8)-1 vs Tamas Kovacs 23(14)-0

12 rounds
WBA super world light heavyweight title
This is a real title fight. It’s the “super world” light heavyweight title as opposed to the “world light heavyweight title.” The WBA is weird. Anyway, here’s my theory on this fight. The winner is fighting Hopkins. Shumenov is from Kazakhstan and just turned 30. His only loss of his career was to Gabriel Campillo in 2009 and it was a MD as well. Tough luck considering it was in Kazakhstan too. He avenged the loss in a rematch and has fought sporadically since then. Shumenov, now with Golden Boy, is looking to build a name for himself in the light heavyweight division. Kovacs has never faced stiff competition and this shouldn’t be a tough fight for Shumenov.

Don George 24(21)-4-2 vs Troy Lowry 28(17)-13

6 rounds
super middleweight division
Nearly a year after being stopped by Caleb Truax, Don George returns at super middleweight against 41 year old Troy Lowry. Lowry, for my money, is in trouble. George is a guy who took Adonis Stevenson 12 rounds (before being stopped), Edwin Rodriguez 10 rounds, and he upset highly touted prospect Cornelius White back in 2011. Lowry is coming off 2 knockout losses and has been stopped by a who’s who in the middleweight, junior middleweight scene in the past 8 years.

Alexei Collado 18(16)-0 vs Rod Salka 18(3)-3

10 rounds
lightweight division
This is going to be on Shobox and it’s promoted by Iron Mike. Collado is an interesting prospect. He hasn’t had a significant win in his career thus far, and like Mike Perez, is a Cuban defector coming out of Ireland. He’s 26 and Salka represents a jump in the level of opposition he’s faced.

This is going to be a good week for prospects. Well, maybe not to be prospects, but good for someone who likes to watch prospects. While the other guys on this card are undefeated, none carry the clout that Lubin does. When he turned pro, it was a big deal. Many felt Iron Mike had poached him off the American amateur team. He’s progressed nicely and is exciting to watch. He’s a free swinger with power in both hands.

Without any name recognition here, we’ll have to hope this is an entertaining fight.

Errol Spence 11(9)-0 vs TBA

10 rounds
welterweight division
TBA does not care that Spence is one of the top prospects in the sport. He doesn’t feel bothered by the rumors that Spence has knocked out championship level fighters in sparring. He didn’t even watch tape of Spence to see how well Spence can mix up his offense to finish his opponents in a variety of ways.

Scott Quigg 27(20)-0-2 vs Tshifhiwa Munyai 24(12)-2-1

12 rounds
WBA world super bantamweight title
First things first, this isn’t for the real WBA title. That title currently sits on the kitchen table in Guillermo Rigondeaux’s house. Either way, Quigg is ready to leave the prospect nest. Quigg is 25 and after putting a beating on Diego Silva, he now faces South African Tshifiwa Munyai. Quigg is a big step up in competition for Munyai. I believe Quigg should be able to pull off an easy win here and officially arrive on the world scene at super bantamweight.

Anthony Crolla 27(10)-4 vs John Murray 33(20)-2

12 rounds
lightweight title
Crolla may not be the most skilled lightweight out there, but he’s definitely one of the grittiest and toughest. This guy was in a fight of the year candidate with Gavin Rees last year where the 2 pounded away with body shots on each other for 12 rounds. Since being stopped by Brandon Rios, Murray has been on somewhat of a rebuild. Crolla represents another step up for him. His last 2 opponents had a total of 20 wins between them. I expect Crolla to be too much for Murray.

Josh Warrington 16(1)-0 vs Rendall Munroe 28(11)-4-1

12 rounds
featherweight division
Warrington won me over as a fan the last time I saw him. This guy went to war with an awkward guy for 12 rounds. Warrington threw everything he had at him and the guy just walked right through his shots. I mean, when a guy is 15 and 0 with no knockouts, you do that right? Well Warrington pressed on and in the final moments of the fight, finally overwhelmed his guy and the referee had to jump in to stop it. Munroe’s claim to fame is knocking out Victor Terrazas (which Leo Santa Cruz failed to do.)

Callum Smith 9(7)-0 vs Francois Bastient 43(18)-10-1

6 rounds

If I were to draw up a list right now of the top prospects in the UK, Callum Smith would have one of the strongest arguments to be the number one guy. Check this guy out.
From DC Armory, Washington, DC

Bernard Hopkins 54(32)-6-2 vs Beibut Shumenov 14(9)-1

12 rounds
WBA super world light heavyweight title
IBF light heavyweight title
Beibut Shumenov has quietly been a title holder at light heavyweight for 4 years now. He won it by split decision over Gabriel Campillo. Hopkins needs no introduction. He’s a living legend with his space in the hall of fame already reserved. At 49 years old, every little thing he does only enhances his legacy. His wins include Roy Jones Jr, Kelly Pavlik, Antonio Tarver, Oscar De La Hoya, and Felix Trinidad. Stylistically, Shumenov seems to be taylor made for Hopkins. He’s a slow, plodding guy who relies heavily on landing a power jab followed by a straight right. We have seen Hopkins beaten by an expert jabber, but that kind of jab isn’t the one Shumenov is looking to use. I think that Hopkins may actually outwork Shumenov and beat him on the cards. I’m excited to see Hopkins in the ring again. If Shumenov were to win, it would have to be by knocking Hopkins down a couple of times or even out. Shumenov lacks the speed to consistently beat Hopkins to the punch.

Shawn Porter 23(14)-0 vs Paulie Malignaggi 33(7)-5

12 rounds
IBF welterweight title
Shawn Porter makes his first defense of the IBF title he won by upsetting Devon Alexander last December. The winner of this fight will have a mandatory defense against the Special One, Kell Brook. This is a real interesting fight between Porter and Malignaggi. Malignaggi looked stunning against Judah and Porter’s relentless pressure allowed him to break through Alexander’s slick skills. My concern for Malignaggi and why I favor Porter is this: Does Malignaggi have the power to keep Porter from coming inside and working like he did in the Alexander fight? Malignaggi has a terrific jab, but is it enough? It’s going to need to be doubled and hooked off of to keep Porter on the outside where Malignaggi can’t lose. Does Paulie have the gas to do that for 12 rounds? We saw in the Alexander fight that Porter came forward all 12 rounds. I think at some point, Porter will find the opening and it will become a very different fight from that point.

Peter Quillin 30(22)-0 vs Lukas Konecny 50(23)-4

12 rounds
WBO middleweight title
What do you call a person from the Czech Republic? Czechi? Czech Republican? Konecny moved to middleweight a year ago and this will be his 3rd fight as a middleweight. Konecny was a standout as an amateur amassing somewhere around 230 wins. This will be the first venture out of Europe for the 35 year old. The last time we saw Quillin, he was entrenched in a war with Rosado where Rosado was coming on strong, but the blood coming from his eye was stronger. Quillin won by technical stoppage and retained his title. Quillin is part of a three headed monster at middleweight. There’s Golovkin, Quillin and of course Martinez with belts at the division. Quillin is probably the lesser of the three evils, though that will remain to be seen when Martinez faces Cotto. I don’t expect Quillin to lose, and I hope to see him face Curtis Stevens in the fall.

Sadam Ali 18(11)-0 vs Jeremy Bryan 17(7)-3

10 rounds

Sadam Ali was one hell of an amateur. He was on his way to the Olympics where he got blitzed in the very first fight and that dream was over. He’s probably going to beat Mayweather some day.

Orlando Cruz 20(10)-3-1 vs Gamalier Rodriguez 23(16)-2-3

10 rounds
featherweight
Puerto Rican Orlando Cruz Cruz is coming off a loss to Orlando Salido on the Bradley-Marquez undercard. Cruz lost partly because he didn’t have the power to really keep Salido on the outside, however few have successfully kept Salido from coming inside. Cruz is a slick boxer with a nice jab and I think still has something left in him. Rodriguez hasn’t lost in 5 years, but he also hasn’t faced anybody good in… a long time. For my money he’s never faced a guy with as much talent as Cruz.

Felix Verdejo 11(8)-0 vs Ivan Zavala 6(2)-5-1

6 rounds
lightweight division
Verdejo is one of next stars of the sport, but isn’t going to keep progressing if we don’t start getting him some opponents that have lost 5 of their last 7 fights including getting knocked out by Ik Yang!!! Maybe they know something about Verdejo that I don’t. Maybe they’re trying to make this guy’s highlight reel so sensational that it alone makes people like him. Expect a brutal KO.

Matt Korobov 22(13)-0 vs Emil Gonzalez 11(8)-7-1

8 rounds
middleweight division
Korobov is Russian and lives in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Remind you of someone? He’s not as heavy handed as him, but he seems to be following the path of Sergey Kovalev. Korobov was a real good prospect and I think this is just a gimme fight because he’s fought far better guys than Gonzalez… but Gonzalez is probably the best available Puerto Rican they could find to stack this Puerto Rican themed card.

Traveling to PR in May. Few Questions.

I'll try it and keep it short and to the point. It'll be me and my best friend, both males in our mid 20s. Arrive in SJ (monday) 5/16 at 2pm, leave 5/23 (monday). This is our itinerary so far, please critique/make suggestions.
-Arrive at 2pm and check into our hotel in SJ. We decided to go with a hotel in San Juan because we'll be Airbnb-ing the rest of the way. As to the hotel, we are in between Marriott San Juan resort and Casino and Condado Plaza Hilton. We will be spending 2 nights there, would like to keep that budget at around $400 for both nights. As to the Hotel, we would like for it to be beachfront and a cool/nice pool area with hopefully a younger crowd. As for the 2 days in SJ, we plan on exploring around the hotel the first day when we arrive, and the second day checking out old san juan.
-Day 3 (Wednesday), check out from the hotel early and head out to Fajardo. Hopefully get to el yunque at around 10am and do whatever there is to do in el yunque. After that, get a place to stay the night in Fajardo. Maybe explore a bit at night if there's any nightlife.
-Day 4, wake up early and catch the ferry to either Culebra or Vieques. And here is where I have some questions, because I've heard that culebra is good for a day trip, but that Vieques, I should stay over night.
-Day 5 (friday). Depending on what we do thursday, either go to culebra or vieques.
-Day 6 (Satuday)- We wanted to take a trip to USVI, but I messaged the company that does a monthly ferry trip and they said in may, they will be doing it memorial day weekend which is after we leave. So Saturday is kind of open as of right now.
-Day 7 - Head South West really early to Rojo Cabo, on the way there, hopefully stop by Toro Negro and spend a few hours there. Spend the rest of the afternoon at Rojo Cabo, and then head back to San Juan to stay our last night and catch our plane Monday morning. We will have some spare time monday morning (plane doesn't leave until 3pm) in SJ.
Last couple of things; we are interested in nightlife but not clubs. Preferably local bars. We do want to snorkle, maybe go scuba diving. Definitely some kayaking. We are not completely opposed to sleeping one night in our hammocks (I hear people camp out in Culebra) Lastly, we are traveling from and back to the US with our valid driver licenses, from what I hear we will not need our Passports at all, is this true? Thanks

Friday March 21

From Villa La Ñata Sporting Club, Benavídez, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Juan Carlos Reveco 32(17)-1 vs Manuel Vides 15(9)-2

12 rounds
WBA World flyweight title
Let’s try to make some sense of this. Juan Carlos Reveco is the WBA world flyweight titlist. He won the title on the interim basis (he won 3 interim title fights before the WBA made up their mind and made him the champion.) But he’s not the flyweight champion of the world, nor is he even the WBA flyweight champion! Really! Juan Francisco Estrada is the WBA super world champion (more prestigious because of the super) and was last seen against Milan Melindo in Macao. And since we’re on the subject, THE flyweight champion of the world is Akira Yaegashi. The flyweight division is packed right now. Reveco has Roman Gonzalez on his heels looking to get his title and if it’s not Gonzalez it could be any of the other 6 elite flyweights. Vides shouldn’t be too big of a challenge for Reveco. Vides has never stepped below what I call regional level and this will be the lowest weight he’s ever fought at.

Friday March 21

From Fil Oil Flying V, San Juan Arena, San Juan City, Metro Manila, Philippines

Michael Farenas 37(29)-4-4 vs Hector Velazquez 56(38)-20-3

12 rounds
super featherweight division
Farenas may not have the prettiest record, but his grit and heart make him an exciting fighter to watch as well as a tough out. Farenas is a 29 year old southpaw out of the Philippines. He cuts easily and while I wouldn’t call him a dirty fighter, I think he’s a dirty fighter. Farenas took Takashi Uchiyama (the super featherweight champion of the world) to a draw and gave Yuriorkis Gamboa a few scares (including hurting him several times).His only loss in the past 4 years was to Gamboa. Farenas will give any super featherweight trouble. He’s a pesky fighter who does what he has to do to win.
From Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, Cabazon, California

Vanes Martirosyan 33(21)-1-1 vs Mario Alberto Lozano 28(22)-4

10 rounds
light middleweight division
I’ve been critical of Martirosyan in the past. I find him to be a one plan only fighter. The good thing for him is that plan certainly works out more often than not. His record proves that. Lozano has fought at welterweight for most of his career. He’s come up short against all of the experienced fighters he’s faced and is the perfect fight for Martirosyan to get started with new promoter Gary Shaw.

Anthony Peterson 32(21)-1 vs Marcos Leonardo Jimenez 20(13)-4

10 rounds

junior welterweight division

Anthony is the younger brother of IBF light welterweight champion Lamont. He was a fast-rising prospect at one point in his career and had one of those gut-check type fights back in 2010 against Brandon Rios. Rios was too much for him and only a DQ saved Peterson from the beating he was getting against Rios. He took a couple years off after that and has been on the comeback trail since. Jimenez is a good opponent, but if Peterson still has some of the skills we saw earlier in his career, he can easily win this one.

Saturday March 22

From Arena Monterrey, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

Merlito Sabillo 23(12)-0-1 vs Francisco Rodriguez Jr 13(9)-2

12 rounds

WBO minimumweight title

Filipino Merlito Sabillo won the WBO strap on the interim basis a year ago and was upgraded to full in the summer of 2013. Sabillo is looking to make his case as one of the elite minimumweights out there. Takayama and Budler remain as the top dogs at minimumweight, but a win for Sabillo, with his himpressive record, will make a potential showdown with either of the 2 very interesting. Rodriguez Jr is inexperienced, but no joke. The only problem I have with him is he’s moving down from flyweight to minimumweight (that’s 7 pounds difference) which I think is a little dangerous.

Jorge Paez Jr 37(22)-4-1 vs Vivian Harris 31(19)-9-2

10 rounds

welterweight division

This was a terrible fight when it was going to be Erik Morales vs Paez Jr. Now it will be Harris vs Paez Jr. Still terrible! Paez Jr is coming off a very nice stoppage over Ivan Hernandez and I don’t think Harris really stands a chance.
From Arena Roberto Duran, Panama City, Panama

Anselmo Moreno 34(12)-2-1 vs Javier Nicolas Chacon 19(4)-1

12 rounds

WBA super world bantamweight title

You are probably saying to yourself, what the hell, I thought Moreno recently lost to Abner Mares, where did he heist a title from? Let alone a WBA super world title? (This means he’s unified at least 2 titles in a weight class.) Here’s the story. Moreno moved up to super bantamweight to face Mares and never vacated the bantamweight title. So when Moreno got whooped, he came back to bantamweight where his belt was waiting for him. As for this fight, Chacon is an Argentine who I can’t signal the upset alarm. He’s only fought 2 10 round fights. One was a split decision win, the other he got knocked out. He’s faced only local competition and none were better than ‘good on the domestic level.’ Moreno is many classes above him and should have no problem. Hopefully, Moreno stops messing around and goes after Yamanaka or Solis after.

Jose Pedraza 15(10)-0 vs Alberto Garza 26(21)-6-1

12 rounds

super featherweight division

Pedraza is a very nice prospect and this is a quiet step-up for him. He’s a Puerto Rican kid who puts his punches together nicely and I can see him winning a world title some day.
From Coliseo Roger L. Mendoza, Caguas, Puerto Rico

Jorge Melendez 27(26)-3-1 vs Richard Gutierrez 27(17)-12-1

10 rounds

light middleweight division

This card will be on UniMas and this is a good enough main event. Melendez is either gonna knock his man out or Gutierrez will land a lucky punch and knock him out. Gutierrez has most losses than wins in the past several years.

Felix Verdejo 10(7)-0 vs Juan Santiago 14(8)-11-1

6 rounds

lightweight division

Yes, settle down. Verdejo is back. He’s fighting in Puerto Rico and the atmosphere should be amazing. Verdejo should put on a show like he always does. Hopefully it lasts more than 1 round.
From Istanbul, Turkey

Odlanier Solis 20(13)-1 vs Tony Thompson 38(26)-4

12 rounds

heavyweight division

This is an okay match-up, but in the Klitschko-era not really. Neither guy at this point in their career will give Wladimir much trouble. Solis had the chance to be the first Cuban heavyweight champion when he faced big brother Vitali, but was foiled when Vitali hit him with a right hook that made Solis stumble and suffer a knee injury. Thompson is coming off an uninspiring loss after facing perhaps the best heavyweight in the world not named Klitschko. Thompson was a nice story after upsetting and then reaffirming his victory over David Price, but Pulev gave him a healthy dose of reality. This is an interesting fight. I don’t know that solid can stop Thompson and I don’t know that Thompson can outbox Solis. I’m going to take Solis given his amateur pedigree.

From Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California

Josesito Lopez defeated Mike Arnaoutis by technical decision

This was a very interesting fight on an ultimately unimpressive card. Lopez, a known action hero in the sport, fought a very crafty veteran southpaw who made Lopez miss a ton of punches and won way more rounds than anybody anticipated. In the end, Lopez won and that was an okay decision. In the 8th round an accidental clash of heads opened up a massive cut for Arnaoutis. Arnaoutis, in what I believe was a move motivated by the fact that he saw himself winning on the cards, chose not to continue and they went to the cards. Lopez won, rightfully, but unimpressively.

Francisco Vargas defeated Jerry Belmontes by UD

This fight resembled the Leo Santa Cruz-Cesar Ceda fight. Belmontes attempted to box, and at times I believe well enough to win rounds, and Vargas just kept coming forward. The judges saw a landslide but I saw Vargas winning 4 of the 10 rounds.

Hugo Centeno Jr defeated Angel Osuna by TKO9

This was a non-televised fight.

Errol Spence defeated Gerardo Cuevas by TKO1

This fight wasn’t exactly competitive. Cuevas had the look of a cab driver, despite the pedigree from the name he bore. Spence beat Cuevas from the opening bell, mixing punches up beautifully, and finishing him with a left hook to the body.

Jermall Charlo defeated Joseph De los Santos by TKO5

Charlo defeated his man with methodical precision. His jab was thrown like an overhand right. He landed it at will. Ultimately, he began to mix his punches and follow with an overhand right. He finished De Los Santos in the 5th with a looping right hand.

Joseph ‘Jo Jo’ Diaz defeated Carlos Rodriguez by TKO7

Diaz is an exciting prospect who fights like a 122 lb Canelo. He puts together beautiful combinations and broke Rodriguez down over 7 rounds. Rodriguez never went down, but the accumulated damage he took prompted the referee to end his night.

From Jahnsportforum, Neubrandenburg, Necklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany

Juergen Braehmer defeated Marcus Oliveira by UD

Braehmer won the vacant WBA world light heavyweight title, dropping his man in the 10th and ultimately leaving no questions left to be asked. Braehmer is still on the outskirts in the light heavyweight division. The only benefit he has is that at age 35, he’s nowhere near ‘too old’ for the division.

Kubrat Pulev defeated Joey Abell by TKO5

This was a good weekend for Pulev. Pulev not only added another KO to his fairly anemic KO% for a top heavyweight against a heavy handed opponent, but he’s taken another step to capturing a heavyweight title as Vitali Klitschko has chosen politics over boxing.

Jack Culcay defeated Dieudonne Belinga by UD

These Ukrainians are cold blooded! How dare they not rob the outsider. Fedchenko apparently didn’t learn to much going 12 rounds with Marquez as he was upset in his home town by the Dominican journeyman.

Max Bursak defeated Gari Abajiani by UD

Bursak makes another stride in his quest at middleweight.

Vladimir Tereshkin defeated Oleksiy Mazikin by UD

Oleksandr Usyk defeated Epifanio Mendoza by TKO4

Usyk was impressive stopping his man and improving to 2-0. Usyk is a prospect to watch.

From ExCel Arena, Dockland, London, UK

Kevin Mitchell defeated Brunet Zamora by TKO9

Leonard Bundo defeated Lee Purdy by TKO12

Martin Murray defeated Sergey Khomitsky on points

Murray’s performance this weekend was every bit as disappointing as Josesito Lopez’s. In fact, Murray may have looked a bit worse. In an 8 round fight, I believe the decision should have been a split one. Each guy had a case for winning. The Murray that showed up Saturday would be brutalized by the top tier middleweights and it makes me question just how bad Sergio was injured in their fight earlier this year.

Khalid Yafai defeated Ashley Lane by TKO4

Yafai is a prospect to watch. Lane was highly overmatched, and Yafai definitely took advantage.

Anthony Ogogo defeated Dan Blackwell on points

Ogogo is a good prospect, but this fight did not really showcase how good he is.

From Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas

Marcos Maidana defeated Adrien Broner by UD to win the WBA welterweight title

As Jim Lampley always says, boxing is the theater of the unexpected. After Saturday night, who can say they saw that coming? Maidana winning… on the cards!? A unanimous decision that nobody could dispute. This fight had all the components of a fight of the year and then some. It almost played out like a wrestling match. So much has already been said about this fight, so to summarize this fight is to simply say: the good guys finally won.

Keith Thurman defeated Jesus Soto Karass by TKO9

Although Karass hurt Thurman in the 1st round, the outcome of this fight was never in jeopardy. Karass looked slow and lethargic for the duration of the fight and it seemed for the entire fight that the outcome was all but certain. A win over Karass looks good for Thurman, but this fight is not indicative of how good Thurman will truly be.

Leo Santa Cruz defeated Cesar Seda by UD

Not the usual Santa Cruz fight. Seda was slick for most of the fight and moved often. Santa Cruz won, no doubt about that, but one thing people are probably certain about now is that Santa Cruz will get demolished by Rigondeaux. (I’ve known this all along.)

Beibut Shumenov defeated Tamas Kovacs by TKO3

Shumenov is in line now for a shot at Bernard Hopkins. Shumenov isn’t particularly fast, but he carries a lot of power behind his punches. It should make for an interesting fight, although Hopkins will probably win.

From Phones 4u Arena (formerly M.E.N Arena), Manchester, Lancashire, United Kingdom

Scott Quigg retained the WBA world super bantamweight title by stopping Tshifhiwa Munyai in 2 rounds

I wasn’t very impressed when I saw Quigg first starting out. I thought he was destined to stay at the domestic level. Then something switched. He figured Yoadris Salinas out, made an adjustment halfway through that fight and turned the ship around. He’s developed into a very effective body puncher and I’m curious to see how he matches up with the other super bantamweights… except Rigondeaux. Quigg finished this one with a beautiful left hook and a straight right.

Anthony Crolla stopped John Murray in 10

This was a pretty entertaining fight. Crolla has done a fine job rebuilding himself and I wouldn’t mind seeing him face Ricky Burns if Burns wishes to take on a lesser opponent before heading back onto the world scene.

Josh Warrington stopped Rendall Munroe in 7

Technically Munroe stopped himself, but since when is Warrington a guy who beats guys into quitting? Make this 2 straight stoppages for Josh “War” Warrington.

Callum Smith stops Francois Bastient in the 3rd round

Callum Smith fought an expert fight. He kept the smaller man on the outside with his jab and banged his body consistently. Smith showed his patience and his ability to put punches together intelligently. A well-timed uppercut as Bastient came forward was the end for him.

From DC Armory, Washington, District of Columbia

Bernard Hopkins became the unified light heavyweight champion (WBA & IBF) beating Beibut Shumenov by split decision

I don’t like to nor do I often toot my own horn, but I gotta do it here. Coming into the fight, I wrote in the preview that Shumenov was tailor made for Hopkins. He’s slow, plodding, and consistently tries to throw the very same combination. A jab followed by a loaded straight right. Hopkins knew that and more. Hopkins, at 49, took Shumenov to school and he also scored his first knockdown since he dropped Joe Calzaghe in their fight back in 2008. Hopkins consistently beat Shumenov to the punch, used a varied attack, and continually frustrated Shumenov with his defense. The decision was a split one, which was about as bad as giving Bradley the nod in his first fight with Pacquiao. This one wasn’t close, I had it wider than both Moretti and Roth. Ultimately, Hopkins no longer adds to his fabled career story, but rather to the legend and myth of it. He’s crossing lines that only the special athletes do. Hopkins now seems to be on a collision course with Adonis Stevenson to take the lineal light heavyweight crown. After his performance Saturday, I don’t know how that fight isn’t at least even. As for Shumenov, he needs a trainer, badly. I sense that Shumenov is one of those guys who’s completely independent and doesn’t like to be told what to do. He strikes me as stubborn (why did he continue the same strategy for 12 rounds when it clearly didn’t work?) and that could be the downfall to a clearly talented guy. A good offense coach could turn him into a real terror in a division that doesn’t need any more monsters.

Shawn Porter retained the IBF welterweight title stopping Paulie Malignaggi in 4 rounds

To anybody that has watched Malignaggi’s career, this is tough to write (and certainly to talk about.) Malignaggi burst onto the boxing scene as a fast-talking, trash-talking, brash, speedy boxer who could box the skin off your face, but couldn’t hurt you. He was one of the toughest dudes at any weight division taking Miguel Cotto 12 rounds when it seemed that Cotto might be the next special thing in boxing. After some choice rants about bogus scoring in Houston, Al Haymon and his control over the sport, and everything he said that made Adrien Broner look foolish, Paulie has crawled back into the favor of most fans.
On Saturday night, Shawn Porter fought with an intensity and ferocity we don’t often see. He quickly established that he could out-jab Malignaggi and from there it was all downhill for Paulie. Porter was able to surprise Malignaggi with a lunging left hook that Roy Jones used to use all the time. A lot of people picked the Magic Man to outbox Porter, but Porter showed once again that if your plan is to outbox him, he is going to break through that and hurt you. Porter’s future looks bright and I believe Golden Boy is not going to give him an easy route to the Mayweather sweepstakes. I can’t imagine he doesn’t end up going through Keith Thurman at some point. I think in the end, Golden Boy is going to look at put whoever they want to have a belt against Porter (and it will be a disaster.)

Peter Quillin retains his WBO middleweight title by UD over Lukas Konecny

Konecny may have been a solid light middleweight, but he had no business being at middle—actually, he didn’t do too bad. I expected Quillin to stop him and show that he’s the baddest man at middleweight (…on the Showtime network) but alas, Konecny either has a granite chin (could be true) or Quilin is a little over hyped… or it was a bad night for Quillin… I don’t know. I dare someone to watch this fight again.

From Bahia Shrine Temple, Orlando, Florida

Gamalier Rodriguez defeats Orlando Cruz by UD

This might be the end of the line for Puerto Rican Cruz. He’s now 32 and with his loss Saturday adds a 4th loss to the ledger. Cruz lacks the power to continue to dangerous in a division where speed is key.

Felix Verdejo knocked out Ivan Zavala in one round

Unless Verdejo is hiding some serious glass behind those gloves, he is on track to be the next big thing in the sport. And with all these easy fights Top Rank is giving him, he’s going to have the greatest highlight reel since Mike Tyson. This time it was a straight right hand that knocked Zavala into the twilight zone. Here is the minute and a quarter beatdown in beautiful HD.

Matt Korobov scored a 6th round stoppage over Emil Gonzalez

31 year old Russian prospect wins again.

Friday February 28

From Horseshoe Casino, Hammond, Indiana

Raymond Gatica stopped Sena Agbeko in the 4th round to advance to the quarterfinals in the Boxcino middleweight tournament

For a guy with 15 pro fights, Agbeko has in terrible condition for this fight. He looked gassed early on and it wasn’t tough for Gatica to find the mark and tag him often. The end came in the 4th round. Gatica had Agbeko in the corner and unloaded everything in the kitchen sink. Agbeko hardly had the strength to keep his hands up and the referee stepped in to stop the action.

Willie Monroe Jr won a 6 round unanimous decision over Donatas Bondorovas

Vitaliy Kopylenko stopped Cerresso Fort in the 2nd round

The 2nd round began with both fighters coming to the center, Kopylenko shot a heavy jab to the chin on Fort and down went Fort. Fort got up and tried to engage but was countered with power shots with every opening he created and the referee called off the bout when Fort rose to his feet was clearly on spaghetti legs (not al dente, either.)

Brandon Adams stopped Daniel Edouard in the 4th round

It looked to me like Edouard would be able to outbox Adams with his long reach. A short counter left hook from Adams was the beginning of the end in the 4th. Adams dropped Edouard with the left and continued to find it and mix his punches up to stop Edouard.
From Turning Stone Resort & Casino, Verona, New York

J’Leon Love stopped Vladine Biosse in the 10th and final round

Derek Edwards stopped Badou Jack by technical knockout in the 1st round

It appeared that Derek Edwards saw on gaping hole in Badou Jack’s game and decided that that was the one and only play he had. If he had hoped to win, he’d have to use that hail mary every chance he got. A lazy Badou Jack and Edwards would counter with a thunderous overhand right directly on the chin. You can tell from the opening bell that he was looking for it. It connected flush with the force that just about every super middleweight out there would have buckled from. Yet another Mayweather Promotions fight gets upset.

Christopher Pearson won a split decision over Lanardo Tyner

Imagine you’re Floyd Mayweather sitting in the crowd watching the guys you promote and you might have the upcoming interview with Showtime to promote your next fight. One guy gets sick and another gets bumped up on the card. He’s an experienced young fighter with solid amateur experience and heavy hands. My take on Pearson is that he throws more of a “stay back” jab that doesn’t have a ton of power behind it and when he faces guys like Tyner who’s gameplan is to take away the outside game and keep the fight inside, he will struggle. Guys who come forward and want to fight ear to ear need to have their heads jabbed off to convince them that coming inside is too dangerous.

Arthur Abraham won the WBO super middleweight title defeating Robert Stieglitz by split decision

Abraham rallied and did enough work to upset the reigning WBO super middleweight champion. It may as well be the European championship though because the real title belongs to Andre Ward. Anyway, Abraham looks reborn at age 34 if you catch my drift.
From World Trade Center, Naucalpan, Mexico

Fernando Angulo stopped Pablo Cesar Cano in the 9th round due to a cut

Pablo Cesar Cano is one of the toughest guys out there and I love to watch this kid fight. He’s got a heart as big as the HBO truck, but his skin is rice paper thin. Despite his tremendous heart and talent, it may not be wise for Cano to continue boxing. Check out these pictures. This is consistently happening to the kid. Look at the referee’s face when he looks at Cano and stops it.
From Scottish Exhibition Centre, Glasgow, Scotland, UK

Terence Crawford won the WBO lightweight title from Ricky Burns by UD

Crawford went into hostile territory and boxed a beautiful 12 rounds to decisively win the lightweight title. Unless Burns is completely done, and I don’t think he is, Crawford put on a master performance which elevated the American to the top spot in the lightweight division. Burns definitely had a ton of excuses already pre-built into the fight, but after the fight he was all praises for Crawford.

John Murray stopped John Simpson by TKO2

Simpson hit the deck 3 times in the 2nd round before the referee waved off the contest. Simpson was coming off a tough KO against Derry Mathews.

Anthony Ogogo won on points against Greg O’Neill.

From Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr won a unanimous decision over Brian Vera

Chavez Jr looked like the guy who almost upset the middleweight champion of the world. In fact, he looked a little better. He definitely has the same old Chavez Jr weight advantage that we’ve seen in the past, but his timing improved. He was able to tag Vera with the same punches over and over and decisively win the fight this time. The saving grace for Vera is that he appeared to hurt his hand very early in the fight and it was obvious. He stopped sitting on his punches around the 4th round and that’s about the time Chavez Jr really began to assert himself in the fight. Aside from the final round, which was a joke, Chavez Jr looked impressive and ready to start fighting other contenders in… I guess the super middleweight division if that’s where he’s going to stay.

Orlando Salido won via split decision over Vasyl Lomachenko

I can’t remember a prospect that turned pro with more hype than Lomachenko. I can’t remember a debut that was as electrifiying as Lomachenko’s was. I was excited. I thought history could be made if he was matched up correctly, given he hasn’t had much experience against the more rugged pro styles. Then the Bradley-Marquez card comes along. Salido battered Orlando Cruz and there were rumblings that Lomachenko would go after Salido in his second career fight. I groaned. What a mistake! I thought, we’ve all fallen in love with the idea and the potential upside of this Ukrainian winning machine. We’ve become blind to reality. On Saturday, reality hit hard. Reality does not play by any rules other than the ones it sets. Reality came in the form of low blows, hits during the clinch with the free arm, and a weight it felt comfortable at rather than the weight that was agreed upon.
Lomachenko learned a valuable lesson. One could make the argument that he learned mid fight and didn’t adjust in time. The very thing that made people hesitant to crown Lomachenko as the heir to the featherweight throne, inexperience, would be that which would lead to his defeat. Lomachenko can find solace in the fact that he was the better man that night, and perhaps if he was the man a year from now after a couple of learning fights, he would have possibly stopped Salido with all his advantages.
The reality of the night was that Salido took away what made Lomachenko great. He instilled fear in Lomachenko. Fear of the headbutt. Lomachenko became hesitant to throw body shots and work on the inside. He had nothing to do other than clinch. Salido didn’t win the outside game, but his inside work was what won him the fight. I felt Lomachenko did enough to have an argument for the fight, and his tremendous heart at the end of the fight where he turned up intensity and let it all hang out certainly closed the gap. To quote Mark Twain in a half-assed way that I’m sure he would approve of, the report of Lomachenko’s loss have been greatly exaggerated. He showed everything I needed to see to be optimistic about his future. (For the record, I was never sold on Lomachenko and I thought Salido was beat him.)

Juan Diaz won a UD over Gerardo Robles

Diaz didn’t look in shape, and frankly his performance was underwhelming. Still, he did enough to beat an overmatched opponent.

Oscar Valdez stopped Samuel Sanchez in the 3rd round

Valdez came out and did what he does best. He took his time and broke Sanchez down. Sanchez was game, but his defense made Valdez look like a surgeon. Valdez began to land heavy shots that were wobbling Sanchez every time they landed. The stoppage was a bit controversial as the referee stepped in after a left wobbled Sanchez and called it off.

Jose Zepeda scored a 2nd round stoppage over Johnnie Edwards

Zepeda is a little irresponsible on defense. I feel a quick fighter can catch him, but he’s thus far compensated with terrific footwork and a good amount of power. Zepeda scored the easy stoppage over Edwards.

Alex Saucedo won a UD over Gilbert Venegas

Venegas was brought in to test Saucedo. He certainly did. Saucedo looked like a guy who was in a fight. He paid for his recklessness and while he won easy on the cards, it wasn’t an easy fight. Saucedo is still very green and needs more seasoning.

Michael Farenas stopped Hector Velazquez in 2 rounds

From Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, Cabazon, California

Vanes Martirosyan won a unanimous decision over Mario Alberto Lozano

Martirosyan won by shut-out against the perfect opponent. Martirosyan is an aggressive counter-puncher who likes to throw at the same time. Lozano was all too willing and paid for it in the second round. An overhand right counter that Vanes had landed many times before that dropped Lozano. Martirosyan tried to finish the show, but what Lozano lacked in skill he made up for in heart. An easy victory for Martirosyan, but I’ll still bet against him against any top junior middleweight.

Anthony Peterson won a unanimous decision over Marcos Leonardo Jimenez

Saturday March 22

From Arena Monterrey, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

Francisco Rodriguez Jr won the WBO minimumweight title from Merlito Sabillo by TKO10

Here’s one thing you gotta know if you don’t follow the lower weight classes: you get old a lot faster. One day you’re Floyd Mayweather, the next you’re James Toney. I don’t know what it is, I’ve got theories, but that’s for another time. Sabillo didn’t come in as the number one minimumweight in the world, but Rodriguez appeared to be an easy enough fight for him. The 10 year age difference may have played a vital role. Francisco knocked Sabillo down twice early and in the 10th round a barrage of body punches set up Sabillo. Rodriguez bullied him into the corner and would unload. At one point, Francisco caught Sabillo with a devastating left hook that I thought was surely going to drop him. The referee jumped in to save what brain cells were left in Sabillo’s head and Rodriguez pulls off one of the bigger upsets of the year.

Vivian Harris won a majority decision over Jorge Paez Jr

I suppose you only need a pulse to be granted a license to fight in Mexico. Criticisms aside, Vivian Harris is on a 3 fight win streak with 2 of the wins coming against guys that aren’t that bad. Harris may or may not have been knocked out or stopped 7 times in his career… and he may be a year younger than Floyd Mayweather… so before you go all moral on him for continuing to stack his paper, remember that he’s got a case. He’s still got some skill left. I thought Paez would have destroyed Erik Morales… maybe Morales would have destroyed him… I wonder, who would you rather have still keep fighting? Harris or Morales?
From Coliseo Roger L. Mendoza, Caguas, Puerto Rico

Felix Verdejo stopped Juan Santiago in 3 rounds

It’s fights like there where you gotta ask yourself, is this just a perfectly chosen opponent or is this the next coming of Jesus? Give all the credit in the world to Santiago. First, he’s getting whooped by a quicker, slicker, more skilled guy. Then to make matters worse, Verdejo lands a punch that makes Ricky Hatton flinch. Santiago finds it in himself to get up from it. He walks to the corner, clearly unsure about whether or not he did his homework that day, before the referee stops it. Here you go, a sensational right hand leads the way for another Verdejo victory.
From Auditorio Juan Pachin Vicens, Ponce, Puerto Rico

Jose Pedraza won a unanimous decision over Alberto Garza

Pedraza adds win number 16 and has put the the super featherweight division on notice. That was his first 12 round fight and I’m guessing he’s 2 fights away from fighting for a real world title. The super featherweight division is packed and he’ll have no problem finding a challenging fight.
From Arena Roberto Duran, Panama City, Panama

Anselmo Moreno retained his WBA super world bantamweight division by unanimous decision over Juavier Nicolas Chacon

Moreno coasted to an easy victory. He built up a lead early by knocking Chacon down a couple of times early and out-boxed him the rest of the way.
From Atatürk Spor Salonu, Tekirdag, Turkey

Tony Thompson won a split decision over Odlanier Solis

Thompson did just enough to edge out Solis in this cheeseburger classic. Either guy could have gotten the fight, but Thompson edged out on the close cards by getting the final 2 rounds. There’s not much to say about this one. Solis has suffered a big set-back and I’m sure he is considering a rematch (which I advise against) while Thompson is probably talking to his manager about fighting the winner of Klitschko-Leapai.
